just curious how all of us second-timers are doing this year... i'll start. last year: sent secondaries to about 20 schools. interviewed at gw (rejected), usc keck (rejected), nymc (waitlisted), uc davis (waitlisted). this year: sent secondaries to about 20 schools again. no acceptances. 2 interviews completed at albany (waitlist) and mcphu (no word yet, but fingers crossed). upcoming interviews at evms (2/8) and mcv (2/11). difference between this year and last year: turned my secondaries in quicker, continued working full-time in nutrition research, had 3 papers published, presented a couple of papers at a scientific meeting, did some basic science labwork, cofounded a free nutrition clinic for an indigent population.
